Morocco experiences the possibility for cooperation in the Kazakh tourism market, explained Abdeljalil Saubry, the first Ambassador of Morocco to Kazakhstan at the Dec. 5 inaugural Moroccan tourism day in the capital.
The event attracted around 50 local tour agencies, five Moroccan tour operators along with representatives of the Moroccan National Tourist Office and Royal Air Maroc.
“We are taking the first major step in this promising direction. The number of companies presented and their reputations demonstrate a great interest in Morocco today. It demonstrates great potential and opportunities that we have and we will develop further. I believe this is the first stage of our fruitful cooperation,” he said.
Two years ago, the Moroccan Embassy was opened and recorded an increasing number of visa applications. Also, it issues visas for Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
“We see that Kazakh tourists are eager to see new countries and to discover new cultures. They are interested in finding new directions. This inspires us to promote the tourism sector and improve the service,” he added.
